One may ask (as I always do) : "How to be a good poet?"
Stephen Dunn (a Pulitzer-prize winning poet) says :
A young poet may believe if he feels something he can be good. A dancer or musician would never say that. You've got to practice. When a poet realizes that and his life over to it, he succeeds.
